Congratulations to our first scientist in the Czech Republic

With our first ever grant in the Czech Republic, Dr Libor Macurek in Prague is studying how a newly discovered mutation in the PPM1D gene could lead to cancer. This gene recently hit the news when it was linked to possible increased risk of breast and ovarian cancer. Now Dr Macurek is studying if a PPM1D mutation he has found may affect development of lymphoma, breast cancer, and bowel cancer.
